Aristotle Capital Boston
Small/Mid Cap Equity
The investment objective of the Small/Mid Cap Equity strategy is to maximize long-term capital appreciation while mitigating risk relative to the benchmark over multi-year periods. Through a fundamental, bottom-up research effort, the team seeks to identify businesses they believe possess quality management teams, attractive industry dynamics, strong or improving financials, and attractive upside potential and limited downside risk.
The firm believes it can generate alpha over the long term by exploiting business valuation opportunities as they are identified in the marketplace, creating long-term value driven by security selection. While there is no formal tracking error target for the strategy, it has historically ranged between 3% and 5%, annualized.
